from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

In a deep draft, which this one is shaping to be June 21-22 in Vancouver, the Wings are likely to pick a player who will be another significant piece in the organization rebuild.

The Wings have 10 picks in this draft, including three in the second round and two in the fifth round.

New general manager Steve Yzerman said at his introductory press conference the need to draft well is important for the organization.

“We want to be a team that can compete for the Stanley Cup championship,” Yzerman said. “That takes time. We have a lot of draft picks; we have good kids coming. How well we draft and how quickly these players develop into impact players in the NHL will determine our success.”

more and a slideshow of the top prospects…

Splain Lucy! why do you feel this way? Not saying I disagree, but you usually do not react in such a way.

I’m not a big fan with how GR is run, so this news doesn’t inspire confidence in me.

GR is run like the Wings at the end of their playoff streak. On one hand, they are always competitive, but on the other, there are so many vets or marginal players that the guys who we want to see how they handle a big role, lose out on that role to guys who will never see NHL ice.

I feel ice time and opportunity are more important for the top prospects than being a Calder Cup contender every year. I think we need to dial back the number of AHL veterans to force our young guys into roles that they will need to learn if they want to be top NHL players.
